The Service Coordinator Program provides annual extension funding for the employment of Service Coordinators in Multifamily Housing developments. Extensions under the Service Coordinator Program are made for a one-year performance period and cover costs related to salary, fringe benefits, and other related costs associated with the Service Coordinator position. These extension funds are to be used only to meet a critical need. Meeting a "critical need" means addressing a need that cannot be met through other funding resources. All extensions are subject to the availability of funds.
Before submitting your annual request, you are encouraged to access and review the many resources made available via HUD Exchange Service Coordinators in Multifamily Housing Program:
Starting in Fiscal Year 2017, request for extensions must be submitted and processed through GrantSolutions only. To learn more about this platform, visit GrantSolutions.
To be considered for an annual renewal, you must comply with annual submission requirements. The Annual Renewal Notice is available by accessing the Owner’s GrantSolutions account.

All Owners are required to register in the System for Award Management (SAM) and obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number before funds can be disbursed to that entity. The DUNS is the nine-digit identification number assigned to a business or organization by Dun & Bradstreet and provides a means of identifying business entities on a location-specific basis. The DUNS number must be provided on all financial/banking documents sent to HUD. If the DUNS number is not included on such documents, HUD will not process the action(s) and the document(s) will be returned. Request may be made by visiting:
- The Online DUNS Request Portal.
- The System for Award Management (SAM).
HIGHLIGHT: The DUNS number must be that of the Ownership Entity (eligible applicant).
